Unravel its secrets and activate ancient mechanisms to uncover the truth behind its fall. On your journey, you might encounter a unique dragon and face off against the formidable “Legatus Golem.”


Rock Out with Itto!

Get ready to headbang with Itto’s “Iridescent Arataki Rockin’ For Life Tour De Force of Awesomeness”! This rhythm game event returns players to Inazuma for a music festival featuring Itto and Dvorak, the bard from last year’s Lantern Rite. The event has three stages:

  • Stage 1: Groove to the beat in classic rhythm game challenges featuring familiar in-game music.
  • Stage 2: Show your festival spirit by collecting materials to decorate the venue.
  • Stage 3: Help reunite fans with their missing music by finding them and completing a minigame.

Specially-Shaped Saurian Search

Calling all monster hunters! The “Specially-Shaped Saurian Search” event tasks you with capturing unique enemies for a chef recently arrived from Natlan. This is a combat event where strategic buffs play a key role in defeating various foes.

Windtrace: Seekers and Strategy

The popular hide-and-seek event, Windtrace, returns with a new twist! This time, the game introduces a “Surveillance Zone” where captured Rebels can wait for a short period or be rescued by teammates. However, getting caught twice means permanent capture and spectator mode.

Rebels also have a new gameplay element: Signaling Devices. Repairing these devices allows them to transform into objects and hide, and repairing four devices leads to an automatic Rebel victory.

Vibro-Crystal Applications

The Chasm becomes a testing ground in the “Vibro-Crystal Applications” event. Researchers from Fontaine have arrived to study the harmonic resonance of crystals. Players will participate in combat challenges with two teams, utilizing trial characters and strategically pairing different crystals to gain combat buffs.

With a captivating new region, fresh characters, and exciting events, Genshin Impact 4.6 promises an unforgettable adventure. Gear up, Travelers, and prepare to set sail for new discoveries!
